You can use a little bit bigger paper. I would say you could get away with twice the size of a cig paper.

Money well spent...Scott brings some great thinking to the plot allowing the performer to end squeaky clean before the reveal. While the patter is nice it's secondary to his improved mechanics and routining over the original Nate Leipzig version.

I have this and it is indeed good. Unfortunately, I didn't find too much value in this as it's almost identical to another effect taught at a lecture I attended (credited and the "patter" didn't suit me personally (it isn't about the patter either).

However, it does not mean it's not good, because it is. I think people will enjoy this. Also, the little modification to the gimmick (which by the way, is not something simple like a folded piece of paper or anything, there's more to it) was not necessary but I definitely think useful whenever travelling with this and for an economy of movement. All in all, it's good/very good, but I didn't find value in it simply because I've been performing something almost identical for a while.

Does this effect require special size papers ala the double wide club cabaret papers needed for Undivided?

You can use any size but I like the EZ Wider 1 1/2 size.

I received this yesterday from Saturn magic in the UK and I'm very impressed. So clean, and unlike other 'in the performers hands' routines, your so far ahead when you give the spec the pieces to hold it's almost unfair! Scotts teaching is excellent too. I can understand why some might baulk at £50 for a paper tear, but this is money well spent. Thanks Scott.

Would like to see another shot of Scott's version as the one he's posted doesn't look as clean as either Vernon or Lewis. There's a moment when everything goes out of view which doesn't seem to happen with the other two.

Scott is brilliant there is no doubt. But why would you want to copy him.


I'd only copy him if his presentation was better than the crap I usually come up with. So I'll probably copy him and sleep like a baby. Call the magic police.

Good, but not to much value? It is good but the modification not necessary, but useful ? Good , very Good but again no value in it ? Wholly Molly WTF!
